Tested out the D700 Picture Control "D2XMODE1" mode with friends as subjects in the evening sun yesterday, similar to the Chinese Garden conditions taken a few days ago. What a difference the mode makes! The colour rendition is like of a different camera altogether. No more "Cooked-prawns" or "Drunken" reddish hue in the evening sunlight, even in Auto White Balance! Just lovely warm and natural looking sunlight and skin tones. I seem to see more blue now in the colour histogram. It seems like my favourite Picture Control mode for portraits on Asian skin tones now. I am unable to post some sample picture as my friends are rather shy!
